Press for Tom Butler's New Single "The Storm"

This emotional folk ballad “The Storm” by singer and songwriter Tom Butler is going to leave you stuck on constant repeat. Even though we’ve listened to this song dozens of times, we still believe that there are no words that can describe its charm. This is honestly such a unique song that shows off some of the beautiful melodic tones of Tom’s stunning voice. Tom Butler has one of the most charming voices we’ve heard in months. The guitars are so beautiful and the cello adds the most perfect touch we could ever ask for. The tune of this record is haunting and the lyrics are honest and very very touching. We love to listen to this song until the last second every time we play it!” - Cheers To The Vikings

Cheers To The Vikings

This is a beautiful, tragic, glorious song. They say the blues are the purest form of heartache, but I’m pretty sure this is acoustic folk that bleeds all over the world. The line, “we mourned the memories we could’ve made…” is poetically perfect and stunningly sad. The plaintive acoustic work is wonderful, allowing the lyrics to break your heart.” - Greg Jones

Ear To The Ground Music

US-based singer and songwriter Tom Butler has just shared his brand new single The Storm, a lovely piece of Folk music. I am very fond of his lovely, smooth vocals which are packed with so much raw emotion and soar beautifully over the warm and intimate production. Tom is quite a gifted storyteller and the whole production allows for the listener to effortlessly connect with his story about the end of a relationship and all of the dreams of a future together. I am loving the intricate acoustic guitar riffs which are perfectly intertwined with lush strings, creating the perfect atmosphere for both his vocals and storytelling to soar.” - Caesar
